Doris P. Staples
Birth 5 Mar 1924 in District of Columbia
Death 24 May 1971 in Woodbridge, Virginia
Doris was the adopted daughter of Gustavus A Staples (b.1863-1944) and Amanda E Staples (b.1869-1940). She was adopted at an early age and appears in the 1930 census as being age 6, living in the Staples household.
Her gravestone indicates that Doris probably married a Golden, but which one?
Doris has intrigued me for a number of years. I coach soccer at the Howison Homestead Park on Minnieville Road., in Woodbridge, Virginia. All that remains of the homestead is the family cemetary of the Howison and Staples family. Next to Doris’ gravestone is a small white metallic cross, possibly indicating the presence of a child.
